    So I received the new batch of parts from the laser cutters. Which includes the updated front fender support. It now has the hole patterns for the OEM BMW lower triple clamp and the YZ/WR lower triple clamp. And so can be used to strengthen the fender on a bike with BMW forks and a converted front end.

    It may be a bit of lipstick on a pig, but here's some shiny new pieces of footpeg bracket art on my well-weathered Dakar...[​IMG][​IMG]

    Thumbs up, thanks for posting the pictures.

    More importantly, how do they make you feel?
